UPDATE: WE WON! DUH! Will Won two free Hot N Ready pizzas a month. BOOM! That ought to cover about 10% of his Hot N Ready habit.

When I saw this on Facebook I immediately recruited my friend, Will Blanton, and teamed up to design and build what we are sure is a winning costume. Picture it: a... More

The 12 Days of Dumpling in a Halloween Costume: Taco

We realize that sometimes we exploit our little French bulldog mascot Dumpling, but then we look at his smooshed face and let out an awwww. How could people not want to see him dressed in food-themed Halloween costumes? And so, we scoured the internet for our 12 favorites. Between now and November 1, you'll get a photo of Mr. Dumpling in a costume each day. First up: the taco! He tried taking a few nibbles of the shell part and plush "meat" filling. More

Craigslist Bacon Costume Still Looking for Good Home

This Washington, D.C.-based Craigslist ad for a homemade felt bacon costume, priced at a reasonable $10, somehow went ignored last weekend. The creator and seller says it's still available, and she's even extending the former "must pick-up today" (June 21) deadline to the first week of July.
